“This cemetery is located west of the Okanogan River about 1½ miles north of the town of Tonasket, on Hwy #7. From town you will know you are on the right road as soon as you cross over the river on a bridge. The cemetery will be on your right and easy to spot.”
“I walked the cemetery on July 20-21, 2001, and have transcribed from this reading. I have also compared my readings with Okanogan County Cemetery Records, pub. 1991 by OCGS. I have placed an asterisk after each of the entries added from their work. This means there either was no marker or they were unreadable.”
“As far as I can find out this cemetery is owned and maintained by the city of Tonasket, under a cemetery board.”
“I used my digital camera for the largest part of the headstone reading. The last section I had to read by hand; ran out of batteries. This means I do not have photos for all.”
